Details

In a not-so-far-off future a beautiful, artifically created girl - unaware of her non-human background - searches for the non-existent parents she believes must exist, wandering alone in a world populated by humans and by the slave-driven robots who serve them. Tezuka's key theme of the nature of humanity in a technological society is framed in bold relief, as well as his wry allegorical observations of the Cold War that was escalating when he created Metropolis. A brilliant work of wit and wisdom - and guest-starring some friends you may recognize from Astro Boy! - Metropolis is one of graphic fiction's most enduring tales, availabel for the first time in an English-language edition.
